One of the most common pregnancy complications is Gestational Diabetes. This affects close to 5% of all women who are carrying a child. Doctors will test for this around the 24th week of pregnancy so it can be diagnosed and treated right away. The earlier it is diagnosed, the better. If your baby is not tested for gestational diabetes, or the diagnosis of this condition is wrong, your child and even you could be at risk for a severe birth injury that can be fatal. You should consult with our Pennsylvania birth injury lawyers now if you or your child have been harmed as result of gestational diabetes misdiagnosis.
Leaving gestational diabetes untreated can be critical to the mother and child. Untreated, the baby can become very large. The large size of the child increases the risk of hypoxia, Erb’s Palsy, or shoulder dystocia. If after the birth, the child has low blood sugar and it is not diagnosed and treated right away that child could suffer permanent brain damage.
